I second this.
There is nothing more confusing and chaotic than seeing the other end of your line quickly rise to the surface and massive fish (that you wont believe is actually hooked on your line) jumping 100 feet in front of you. You kinda just freeze on your first couple of tarpon. I have never caught one on fly yet, but have many on spin gear.
Waiting for the next gift holiday to get one of those monster rods.
